Concord Class Dreadnought, 1907
[ img ]
A brief history: After receipt of the Saarbrucken and Innsbruck pre-dreadnoughts in 1898, the DN finally had a capable ocean-going battleship. However, their service life was quite short, as they were soon made obsolete by the rapid advances in naval technology at the time. They were quickly out armored, out paced, and, by sheer number, outgunned. After the appearance of HMS Dreadnought, which set the standard for later ships, the DN knew it would not be able to keep up with these fast, heavily armed ships, and decide to take action. With approval to dip into the emergency fund, the DN created basic requirements for the design of their new 'dreadnought' and contracted the design and building work to the rapidly growing East Haven Federal Shipyard. The EHFS was the primary builder for most of the DN's ships, from the torpedo boats, all the way up to one of the larger Armored cruisers. EHFS therefore had the capability to build such a large and revolutionary ship. After design work was done, however, it was found the EHFS could theoretically build the dreadnought, but it would take more than 5 years to build and commission it with it's limited facilities, so it was instead contracted to Newport News Shipbuilding (which built all of Denton's battleships. All of them). The keel was laid down in early 1906 and the hull was launched in 1908. After being steamed to Denton for outfitting (as was standard), she was named Concord, and commissioned in 1909. This is also when the Saarbrucken and Innsbruck were sent to the reserve fleet and used for training exercises.

Dentonite Zeppelins
ZRE-3
[ img ]
After WWI, Denton was lucky to secure a Zeppelin as war reparations. LZ98 (L52), a U class "Height Climber" Zeppelin, was transferred to Dentonite hands in 1920 and was redesignated ZRE-3 (experimental). It was first used as a design study, influencing two later airships, ZRA-3 and ZRA-4, built in 1922 and 1923. Later, it was used for transport missions to Denton's newly acquired Pacific Territory. ZRE-3 served for 4 years, making 41 Flights, 26 of which were to the Pacific Territory and one to Denton's Antarctic Claim. In it's service with Denton, ZRE-3 covered 173,900 nautical miles before being broken in a high wind while secured to it's Pacific mooring mast. It burned out, destroying the mast along with it and killing 2 men, one in the ship and one on the ground.

Built by: Luftschiffbau Zeppelin in Staaken
First Flight: July 14, 1917
Commissioning: July 24, 1917

Length: 644ft 8in
Diameter: 78ft 5in
Number of Gas cells: 18
Volume: 1,978,000 cu ft
Ceiling: 18000ft
Range: 5600nm
Crew: 13

Note: In real life, LZ98 was actually scuttled by its German crew in June 23, 1919, however for purposes of the Denton AU, this will be an exception.

ZRA-4 Heistand
[ img ]
Designated as ZRA-3, Heistand was laid down in 1923 in the newly built Hangar No.1 at Neuberlin and launched in 1925. When it was built, it was the largest airship in the world by volume, at a whopping 4,340,000 cubic feet. It was considered the most luxurious airship in the world, even after the Graf Zeppelin was built. It flew, worldwide, with popular destinations being NSWE, Rio de Janiero, Lakehurst, and Freidrichshafen. It made over 590 flights and flew just over 1,400,000 miles, being the first aircraft to pass the million mile mark (narrowly beating out the Graf Zeppelin). Even after the Hindenburg accident, Zeppelins were still popular with the Dentonites and trips were fairly regular until the war started. The last flight was in 1940 and it was stored in one of Neuberlin's hangars. It was finally scrapped in 1962.

Length: 713ft
Diameter: 117ft
Volume: 4,340,000 cubic feet
Speed: 64kts, cruise - 72kts, max
Propulsion: 5x Gondolas, w/ 600hp gasoline/blau-gas engines
Crew: 39
Passenger Capacity: 42
Useful lift: 156,500lbs

Several notes:
-There are two sets of cabins, a set in the gondola and a set inside the structure. The cabins in the gondola are considered more luxurious, as they offer wide views to the ground below.
-The kitchen is located inside the structure. It is slightly pressurized to prevent any Hydrogen from leaking in and is also lined with asbestos.
-There is a dining room on the starboard side and a lounge on the port side.
-The crew sleep within the outer envelope, around the cabin structure.

MT-76 Series
Produced from 1967 to 78.

Length: 25'
Width: 8'2"
Height: 9'5"
Engine: Brittany V8 4.8L, 165HP @ 3300 RPM

Suspension: Backbone Independent Spring
Curb Weight: 23,000lbs
Gross weight: 51,000lbs

The MT-76 is a 7 ton 6x6 truck built in the 1960s by the Elrich Motor Company based in Saarbrucken. It was developed in response to Denton's need to replace it's aging fleet of post-war trucks. It was the second military truck series to incorporate the backbone and independent suspension, as revolutionized by Tatra, and the first truck to successfully deploy the TMEB (Truck Mounted Earth-moving Blade). While praised by it's crews for it's ruggedness and ability to tackle the roughest terrain with ease, it was woefully underpowered (although the engine was very reliable) and a maintenance nightmare. The backbone chassis it was built on had reliability problems that were not solved until the -13 series, the transfer case had a knack for going out at inopurtune times, and the transmission was extermely noisy and was difficult to shift. Despite all of these problems, it served as the backbone for the Denton Army until the introduction of the larger, more reliable HT-86 and HT-158 in 1988.

HT-86 and HT-158 Series
Produced from 1988 to 2003.

Built by Elrich and AAC


Length: Varies
Width: 8'2"
Height: 8'6"
Engine: Brittany V8 6.0L, V10 7.5L, V12 9.0L, all equipped with one turbocharger of proportional size
Bore: 3.75
Stroke: 4.15
Block/Head Material: Cast iron
Peak Horsepower: 325HP @ 3,300RPM (V8), 405HP @ 3,300RPM (V10), 485HP @ 3,300RPM (V12)
Peak Torque: 560lb-ft @ 2,000RPM (V8), 700lb-ft @ 2,000RPM (V10), 840lb-ft @ 2,000RPM (V12)
Firing Order: 1-2-7-3-4-5-6-8
Valvetrain: Single gear driven camshaft, 4-valves per cylinder
Compression Ratio: 18.0 : 1
(This particular Brittany V8 is essentially the same specification as the Navistar VT365, which was the basis for the Ford 6.0L Powerstroke)

Multiple Rocket Launcher, Wheeled, 40 barrels (4.8 inch). This is based on both the WR-40 Langusta and the RM-70 MRL.
[ img ]
This the Mine Resistant Armored Vehicle series 2. It is based on the Cougar HE.
[ img ]
This vehicle was designed by Technical Solutions in South Africa (alongside the Cougar HE) and is built on a modified version of the HT-86 truck chassis and utilizes an independent suspension to increase offroad mobility. It is also 6 inches wider than the Cougar HE, to widen the stance and lower the risk of it rolling over (and increasing the size of the troop compartment).

The Troop capacity on all models is 13, with 3 crew + 10 passengers.

The top MRAV has a ROWP (Remotely Operated Weapons Platform, pronounced 'Rope'), and the bottom MRAV utilizes a turret like those used on the AIT-5 and the AIFV-6, with a 30mm Autocannon and a 7.62mm coaxial. The turret also increases the survivability of the gunner in the event of a roll over.
This is the AIT-5, the 5th APC in the AIT series
[ img ]
The AIT-5 was concieved in 1991, with the abolishment of conscription and the move to a more professional army underway. Since the setup of of the previous AITs came under fire, Moffet Truck re-designed the whole vehicle, keeping the suspension and engine (although updated), but changing everything else. The AIT-5 retained the side door of the AIT-4, but it was enlarged to a more comfortable 30 inches, and the engine was moved forward behind the drivers and underneath the turret. Where the engine was before, a rear door was added and fold down seats were installed against the wall. The overall capacity was 10 troops in the compartment (12 on overload), and three crew. Like the rest of the AIT series, it was loaded with armor, offering protection from 14.5mm AP rounds all the way around (while earlier AITs only protected from 7.62 mm).

Here are the specs.

Length: 26' 3"
Width 9'9"
Height: 7' 4" (hull), 10' 2" (oa)
Crew: 3+10(12) passengers

Main armament: 30mm autocannon

Some history -

The AIT series was first concieved by modifying surplus halftracks from WWII into 6x6 trucks. The first conversion was completed in 1947, intended to replace halftracks in Army Service. This created the AIT-1. After the intial conversion was done by the Army, the Moffet Truck Factory (MTF) was contracted to build the trucks.

The AIT-1 was produced from late 1947 to mid 1953, until the army contracted MTF to deign and build a new AIT. The total production run of the AIT-1 numbered in the area of 5000 units, excluding the converted halftracks. The trucks were initially popular with crews and soldiers, until they encountered heavy fire that penetrated the thin armor. While popular with the soldiers who used them, the engine had a tendency to break down if it was over stressed, such as in combat situations or driving in difficult terrain.

In 1958, MTF finalized the replacement for the AIT-1. The AIT-2 was a 8 wheeled, open top, amphibious APC that could carry up to 17 troops. The first version proved to be very capable, both on land and off, but many soldiers complained of the shorter sides (to make disembarking easier) exposing the top of their helmets, and later MTF came out with an updated model, eliminating the short side. The next batch was updated with a roof and 4 roof hatches, with a reduced troop capacity of 13. In the period between 1958 and 1968, a total of 4500 AIT-2s were built.

Basic specs:
Length - 25.35 Feet
Width - 9.25 Feet
Height - 8.5 Feet
Armor - 9.5 mm

Speed - 50 MPH land, 6.5 MPH Water

Crew - 3
Troop Capacity (Batch 1) - 17
Troop Capacity (Batch 3) - 13

This aircraft was first flown in 1939 and was the fighter that held off the Japanese attack on Denton in early 1941. It continued service late into the war, and proved a formidable fighter after several engine problems were addressed.
By around 1944 it was rendered obsolete, but our largest aircraft manufacturing plant was destoryed in the attack (in 1941) so it was our primary fighter until late 1943 when the facilities were back up and running. After better aircraft had been produced, it was used for observation purposes and for dogfight training back at home. After the war, the aircraft was popular with private individuals who then used the aircraft for traveling or recreational purposes (like the Cavalier Mustang).

Ok, nothing on the Cruiser. I'll start small.

This is an AAW Destroyer, inspired by Eswube's Generic 1960s Destroyer.


Built: ca.1961
Length: 440ft
Beam: 45ft
Draught: 22.5ft

I am posting this to see if I am headed in the right direction with the weapons, radars, etc. Any help/input would be much appreciated. I am also not sure of what weapon to put behind the bow gun. Since I am following the setup of Eswube's Generic, it is an ASW weapon, but I am not sure what it should be.

For the time period and ASW mission, you could use the Bofors rocket launcher or the Limbo that were on a lot of European ships of the time. I think the French had their own version too, and the US had Weapon Alpha, which looked cool but was apparently not too successful in use.

@Kilomuse, I decided to go with ASROC, because apparently it was fielded in 1961, which is when this ship was built so that works out good. Thanks for your input though!

Ok, after a quick talk with Eswube, I modified the design so it did not look entirely like his Destroyer. After looking around at other ships of the time period, I found the Charles F. Adams class Destroyer and decided to follow that design a little bit (well, pretty heavily actually but that doesn't matter).

So here it is:

If it were me I'd either ditch or swap round that aft 5" with the launcher or if space permits lower the launcher by a deck so that the firing arcs of the 5" are uninterrupted.

My opinion is to copy the solution C.F. Adams has in rear Mk42/launcher.Otherwise,nice design!

@Blackbuck: At first I thought the setup was a little weird, but then I realized that it is an artillery gun, so it will rarely fire straight across the stern.

@odysseus1980: Thank you!

Alright, here is my current WIP.
IMAGE REMOVED
There are 2 ships in the class, BB-4 Fort Albany and BB-5 Lock Haven. I based it off of the New York class of BBs.

Of course, with the specs, I don't have them all yet.

Here are the basics:
Launched: 1913, Newport News Shipyard
Length OA: 575ft
Beam: 95ft
Draught: 27.5ft

Armament:
8 or 10 14" Guns (not sure about the number 3 turret)
20 5" guns

I'm looking for some feedback on the overall design and I'm not entirely sure how to model the casemate guns in the hull.

Comments?
